Meeting Description: Today's world sees how online world influences the way we use language. Development in information technology changes interconnectivity and attitude toward linguistic norms. This situation has sparked the interest in exploring language in the new atmosphere.

Responding to this interest for the fourth time, the English Department of Petra Christian University holds a conference under the theme of Language in the Online and Offline World 4: The Latitude.
